We have three challenges sponsored by Kathryn Doubrley.

From Kathryn Doubrley:
#1 My 2021 challenge to knitters is to knit 100 hats along with me to contribute to the “Keep Maine Warm” campaign. As my Grandma use to say, “good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise,” I will be knitting and sending 100, also. So if you get bored, aggravated and lonely while you work, remember you aren’t really alone. Several of us around the world are knitting maniacally too. Those who do send 100 hats to Linda for the charity will receive one of my books for free plus gratitude and respect from many sources.
Kathryn -

#2 For Hand Loomers - The person who enters the hat selected by the judges as the best loom knitted entry will receive a $20 gift certificate for use in The Answer Lady's Ravelry store. Remember to identify your hat (s) as loom knitted to qualify.
Winner is Mandy Ledger

#3 for all participants: I will email you a free copy of the Country Knitting of Maine News and Views 10 year anniversary e-book if you include your email address with your entry and make a note that you'd like to have it. This requirement is to avoid spamming those who either have it already or don't use e-books.
Please note: all hats entered for the contest have to have your name/address/email attached to it. I cannot do this for you. Just write on a piece of paper or use an address label stuck to a piece of paper. Use yarn to tie it or a safety pin. It helps alot if this is done. Thank you!
